Living and Leading with AuthenticityI believe authentic living and leadership do not come from title, social stature, or the size of one's paycheck, but rather from knowing yourself, how you live, and the impact you make around you.
Mines the origin of authenticity to the Greek root meaning "original, genuine, principal." Contrary to pessimists who might find doubt others, authentic people are all around us, those living their own essence.
Notes that authenticity includes a courageous power and mental discipline to act in a way that corresponds with one's values and beliefs, meaning that one must be mindful, awake to the present moment.
Cultivating inner strength
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world ... As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
